AGM 2019 & Proposed Constitutional Changes
Proposed Constitutional Changes
A redrafted constitution for the Holocaust Centre is being proposed for the upcoming AGM on 18 August. These changes have been moved by Miriam Bookman and seconded by Deborah Hart. Most of the changes simply update the current constitution so the language is simpler and processes are easier to understand. The substantive changes are a reduction in the size of the Board and changes to the voting process to allow for electronic voting.
The proposed constitution will be put forward at the AGM after the election of officers. This means that if the proposed constitution is adopted, it will not apply to the election of officers at the AGM. The current constitution will still apply.
The proposed changes that would reduce the size of the Board are aimed at ensuring the Board has a greater governance focus. It is intended that the new Board would use this opportunity to create more effective operational structures for the organisation. This means the Holocaust Centre will be better placed to have strong oversight, clear strategic direction, and well-run daily operations.
The proposed constitution and current constitution can be accessed below. A table that compares the two documents is also available below.
